Local tenants, especially those with lower incomes, are facing challenges with attending Landlord and Tenant Board hearings that are being conducted on Zoom. There are Chatham-Kent residents that do not have the technology or the technological skills to attend these Zoom hearings. When a tenant does not attend an LTB hearing, the judgement is made in favour of the landlord, resulting in unnecessary evictions. These remote hearings have created a “digital divide” for many tenants since being implemented in 2020.

Phillip Mock, Executive Director of Vision Us will be moderating a discussion with Douglas Kwan, director of advocacy and legal services for the Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario and Jeff Wilkins, Paralegal/Housing Stability Worker with the Chatham-Kent Legal Clinic.
